WoW...5 days into the New Year and I am back..
My former computer, which is running XP Home and was running great has decided to just up and die?
It's been functioning as a spare in our basement gym therefore hasn't been on on a daily basis..I've been trying to remember to turn it on so the Anti-V updates. I think it was last used probably the week before Christmas.
Ok so today I needed to print out some workout sheets and I turned the computer on..the screen came on, the printer came on, the CPU is dead.
I checked all the connections and plugs at the back of the CPU and in the power bar...everything seems fine..I unplugged the CPU and plugged it into another power source (that was working a lamp) and it is still a no go.
Can a CPU just up and die a quiet death without being touched or showing any problems?
HELP Where do I look now?
